Intel Working on Augmented Reality Headset

Published by , March 6, 2016 10:45 pm

(WallStreetJournal)  Intel is developing a wearable headset to deliver augmented-reality experiences. Intel plans to exploit its 3D camera technology called RealSense as its competitive advantage in a crowded field. Intel hopes to exploit vision-related technologies to build new businesses outside the shrinking market for personal-computer processors. The Silicon Valley giant is likely to offer the headset design to other manufacturers rather than market its own model to end users.
Intel can add more visual capabilities with Real Sense. Its 3D camera modules were initially marketed as an enhancement to personal computers, either facing the user, for such purposes as using gestures to control actions in games, or facing externally to track and measure objects and distances in the real world.
